Do you need a new hot water cylinder? Although many homes have hot water heated by a combination boiler, homes with electric heating systems or a high demand for hot water require a hot water cylinder.
There are two main types of cylinder which we can install - vented or unvented. But which one is best for you?
Unvented water heaters are an increasingly popular choice for customers and are especially practical for people living in apartments. Unvented cylinders do not require a feed and expansion tank and therefore take up less space, which is perfect for smaller living spaces.
The most notable difference from vented systems is that unvented cylinders are sealed as there is no vent pipe to release build up of unwanted pressure. As such, there are certain requirements to ensure that pressure can be released and so that the temperature of stored water does not exceed 100 degrees. Installation is controlled by part G3 of the Building Regulations and should only be installed by someone who has a specific unvented cylinder qualification.
